(It's good to have goals.)

Welcome, Kalex!
 
Kalex joins our engineering team, working on neat, secret stuff.

Survival Skillz:

"After an unexplained blackout, I wake up to find myself floating in a large, cylindrical holding cell. Outside, huge reptilian captors stare at me, shouting in a language I don't understand.

"I immediately look to see if there is a way in, some portal or means of entry that the cunning lizardmen might be searching for themselves. Upon finding no such threshold I take a moment and breathe. I start to think: What's around me? What can I use? Are the lizardmen reciting passages from the Necronomicon?

"Did one of the lizardmen just say 'Groovy'? Wait, is that Old Spice I'm smelling?

"That's when I realize the life lesson is here: Always check to make sure your camping trip doesn't cross paths with any local LARP events."

On Being Remembered:

As far as what Kalex wants to be know for?

"After the sun finally runs out of hydrogen and expands into a red giant, engulfing the earth and everything on it with its massive size, burning away all of human history and leaving nothing of our legacy except dust; I'm really hoping that my life gets turned into a Biopic Lifetime movie that'll play on alien daytime TV."

We keep growing, and I'm excited Andrea is joining our team.
 
Andrea joins our QA team, adding her certification skills to the Panic Button studio.

Survival Skillz:

"After an unexplained blackout, I wake up to find myself  trapped in an Egyptian tomb, being carried by a shuffling mummy.

"I immediately set him on fire and run.

"(When in doubt, always set it on fire.)"

On Being Remembered:

Andrea wants "to be known for my writing. I never got over my childhood dream, so in my free time I am a self-published author."

I'll be "speaking" Monday, April 13, 7:30, at Mr. Tramps Sports Pub & Cafe.

I say, "speaking", because, honestly, Gordon and I have strong opinions about a lot of things (some of them related to game development and building people and companies), so this will likely be more along the lines of:

"Two guys talking to each other about stuff. With an audience. And beer."

Welcome, Matthew!
 
Matthew joins our engineering team, working on secret, neat stuff.

Survival Skillz:

"After an unexplained blackout, I wake up to find myself deep in the Amazon, tied to a wooden post. In the distance, I see wave upon wave of army ants approaching me.

"I immediately start shimmying my way up the post to get untied, and start looking for water."

On Being Remembered:

Matthew wants "to be known for my thoughtfulness and how I improve the lives of people around me."

I'm a process guy, and a relationship guy.

I really dig these kinds of humanizing back stories for iconic pop culture offerings.
 
A sense of scale: Wilt Chamberlain, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Andre the Giant hanging out on the set of Conan the Destroyer. The three were good friends, and apparently both Chamberlain and Andre the Giant enjoyed picking Schwarzenegger up and moving him around, because if you can do that, it's probably kind of fun.

(Here's a video of the Governator telling some of those stories -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzIu7o5NH1k)
